It seemed like an odd crash, hard to see from that footage but watching other videos on YouTube it looked like it under steered and then all of a sudden over steered with the back snapping out.

Glad to see he walked away from it though.

Finally getting round to watching the Grand Tour. Enjoying it, loving those three back on the screen!

Makes me want a better, faster car even more though

Almost, They had to drag him out by his arms. Broke his left leg due to the impact.
He's one lucky bugger, just missed the house. That would have mede it so much worse,

I liked the episode, just couldn't get over how old they look now. They appear to have aged a lot since last year.

Funny you should say that as I watched an episode from Top Gear season 2 last night on Amazon Prime and I couldn't believe how different they all looked! Obviously I know that was film a long time ago but still

How very un-American of you! You should march down the nearest car dealership and buy a car on a whim with crappy finance rates just so you can be top dog on the street you live on!

You've just made me think of St Louis as a whole. So many people obviously living above there means driving around in Challengers and Camaro's in St Louis

I'd much rather wait, as I want to get a classic muscle car one day

Plus I'd need to see where my girlfriend and I end up! We aren't sure what our next step is after I complete graduate school, and she completes her PhD!

The Cul de sac we live in seems to be battle of the rednecks.

Seem's to be a new truck turning up each week, then they start out-doing each other by seeing who can put the biggest lift kit on their new truck!

Rednecks living on a cul-de-sac, you obviously get 'em posh in CO?

Ep 2 of Grand Tour is another return to form!

Not going to discuss details, but the decision on good advertising for Hammond had me crying!!!

So glad to have 'da boys' back!

It was very good. Nice to see a return to a more familiar format. Also, I like the little self-aware jokes about the bits everyone hated

Yep.. Very enjoyable.

The only thing I'm not sure about now is the track the guests use.

I like that it has an off-road section, but the rest of it seems very slow to me. That or they need to get their camera angles sorted out a bit.
